'save filter' ability gone

In the old GW6.5 days, the filter search in the upper right of the mailbox window would allow you to save filters that you had created.

In 7.x, it seems they took away that ability from the filter search.

Now in 8.x, they've renamed the field from 'filter' to 'find' but you still can't save searches that you might commonly use.

Has this ability just been hidden somewhere else in the client?

Yep, it's under View / Find / Find in Folder

Re: 'save filter' ability gone

This feature is still there and can be accessed in one of several ways:

1. Click on "Find" next to the search box, and then choose the first menu item "In xxx folder". This will bring up the simple find dialog with the Save button that you are looking for.

2. Right click in the item list and choose "Find in xxx folder". Note that the filter dialog will pre-populate with the data that you right clicked on. For instance, if you right click on the subject it will build a filter that matches the subject of the selected message.

Once you have saved filters, they are even easier to get to. Simply clicking on the "Find" button will show all of your saved filters at the bottom of the menu.

Re: 'save filter' ability gone

Thanks for the hints. Through trial and experiment, I found another way. Once the filter has been created, you can double-click on the header bar above the message results window to get access to the save function as well.

I've let the user's know where this functionality has been moved to.
